New cascade designs

A new design of Sea Trout and Salmon patterns designed for Uist and Currane.
This is by modifying the barbless heavy weight buzzer hook.
This done by applying pliers to the main body of the hook to slightly straighten it, enabling you to dress patterns such as cascades.
Below is just some tied up for fishing this year.
These can by tied on size 8 or 10 Heavy weight barbless buzzer hooks and really look the business.
If you visit Finneys these hooks are available on offer for only £7.00 per 100 instead of shop prices of £4.00 per 25 a massive saving for any budding fly tyer.
All the range of hooks from heavy weight  barbed and barbless are also at the same price for the next 2 months.
Enjoy your wrapping.
